"Manage apps permissions, one by one"

Permissions Manager unlocks App Ops, built-in Android 4.3 tool for managing permissions

Permissions have been one of the main privacy and security concerns on Android OS since its first version. Users had to accept apps permissions in batches: in other words, accept a pack of permissions even knowing that some of them were questionable, or reject installing the app. Dramatic choice.

This situation has come to an end on Android 4.3. There's a built-in feature called App Ops, which is a permissions manager that lets you revoke them one by one, while keeping the app installed. Obviously some of those permissions are needed for the app to run properly. Some of them aren't. If you can identify those questionable permissions, you can now disable/enable them from App Ops.

The problem is that App Ops is a hidden feature that requires following some steps to "unlock" it. Permission Manager by Appaholics makes it way easier. You just need to download the app and let it do everything automatically. In addition, it will provide quick access to App Ops. Just swipe to navigate through categories (location, personal, messaging, device), select any app you want to enable/disable permissions and tap on it. There you'll see all permissions listed and toggles to switch them on/off. That easy.

    Worth keeping 4.3! Turn off GPS tracking, turn off the camera and recording permission to bank apps. Block every single app from reading your contacts. Block phone app from continued audio after you hang up!

    Just crashes upon opening. Useless. Looking at all the other reviews I'm not surprised at my disappointment.

    they want you to pay for full access to built-in, but hidden system functionality. look for other ops manager shortcut apps.
